In demand worldwide, the Quartet has appeared at the world’s most important venues since its founding in 2002. The Parker Quartet’s members hold graduate degrees in performance and chamber music from the New England Conservatory of Music and were part of the New England Conservatory’s prestigious Professional String Quartet Training Program from 2006– 2008. Some of their most influential mentors include the original members of the Cleveland Quartet, Kim Kashkashian, György Kurtág, and Rainer Schmidt. The members of the Parker Quartet live in Cambridge, MA, where they serve as the Blodgett Artists-in-Residence at Harvard University’s Department of Music.
